About Qtum

Category
Software Platform
Value proposition
Bitcoin infrastructure

QTUM, pronounced ‘quantum’, is a blockchain technology designed to merge the smart contract element of Ethereum with the stable blockchain characteristics of Bitcoin as well as using the ‘proof of stake’ consensus mechanism in order to verify ownership. The platform went live in September 2017 and is primarily aimed at enterprises. Due to the combining of the systems, dapps built on Ethereum will be compatible with QTUM too. CoinDesk also provides a suite of institutional-grade price indexes. Find out more about them here.
